CASE STUDY
 
Bruno's/BI-LO Stores

Opportunity:
Bruno’s Supermarkets, Inc. and BI-LO are two premier grocery retailers in the southeast with close to a century and a half of combined grocery retail experience. Bruno’s maintains 173 supermarkets in Alabama, Florida, Georgia and Mississippi; BI-LO operates 232 stores in Georgia, Tennessee and North and South Carolina.

Cardinal Solution:
Cardinal Capital executed a $100 million sale-leaseback transaction with select Bruno’s Supermarkets and BI-LO stores located throughout the southeast. The proceeds constituted a sizeable component of Lone Star Funds’ acquisition financing for Bruno’s/BI-LO from Ahold.
